I have a simple, personal blog/website. It's not a business/commercial site.
WP keeps telling me I need to update to 3.8.3, but AutoUpdate keeps failing when trying to update. I'm using a MacBook Air and 1and1.com for hosting services. I keep receiving the error below when trying to use AutoUpdate.
<em><strong>Warning: copy(/homepages/46/d393696298/htdocs/clickandbuilds/WordPress/MyBlog/wp-admin/includes/update-core.php): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /homepages/46/d393696298/htdocs/clickandbuilds/WordPress/MyBlog/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-filesystem-direct.php on line 200
Could not copy files.
I've tried to use the WP help forums, but I'm not familiar with how to perform manual updates. The forums make is SOUND simple, but to someone who is not code-savvy, it's not. Any help is appreciated.
Arnav Joy answers:
Check the folder and file permission.
Folder permission should be 755 . And file permission should be 644
Where do I find my folder/file permissions? (Laugh if you must. I seriously don't know.)
Arnav Joy comments:
In cpanel or ftp
Is this the right location? (I changed file permission to 644. Didn't work.)
